We've all been there when we're trying to cut the nails on our children's fingers and toes. Wriggly babies, scissors or clippers and accuracy are never a good match! I tend to resort to biting Little Miss' nails and cutting Bud's when he is asleep after I managed to draw blood on one of his poor little toes last year! The Nipper Clipper has combined a range of features which aim to make cutting nails a painless task for parent and child in future.
Designed specifically to cut the nails of under-4s, the Nipper Clipper has a number of features which make it easy to use. Firstly, there is a small window above the blade on the clipper which allows the nail cutter to see the child's fingernail so they know exactly where to cut. Secondly, the clippers have overlapping blades which slice through the nail rather than clipping it, there is no awkward ping as the nail flies off, it cuts gently. The nail file which accompanies the clippers is a tiny version of the adult Stylfile which allows you to simply file away any rough nails.
In addition to the features of the clipper an app has been developed which aims to distract the child while the Nipper Clipper is in use. You simply put it up on your tablet and Timmy Tickle grabs their attention. There are three levels to the app, depending on the age of the child. When I attended the demonstration I saw this in action with the beautiful boys belonging to Mrs Shilts and My Mummy's World and I was really surprised at how well it worked to distract them. The app is currently available in the App Store for free download and there are plans to bring it to the Google Play store soon.
We've been using the Nipper Clipper that we received at the show for the past month now and I'm so pleased at how well it works on both of my children. I no longer have to think about cutting their nails, we can just cuddle up and do it really easily. Bud, who I thought would still resist, doesn't now he knows it won't take long and there is no scary 'clip' sound.
It turns out that it's really difficult to take a good photo of a child having their nails cut so I'm going to show you this video instead.
The Nipper Clipper is available to buy from Sainsbury's stores and online at Amazon.co.uk
